New~ From Folk Art From The Heart

Ginger and Fred

Ginger, just slightly past her prime, still loves to trip the lights fantastic. Dressed in her finest dancing gown, she gathers her new partner, Fred, and heads out to dance the night away.

Ginger was created by me, using my own hand made paper clay. Fred was created with polymer clay, as was Ginger's shoes. Once baked, Ginger was hand painted using acrylic paint. Chalks and oils were used to create highlights and shadows. The whole piece was then antiqued to bring out all the details. Finally the piece was coated with a satin sealer to protect the paint and keep the colors vibrant for years to come.

Ginger was created in my smoke free studio in sunny California. She stands 5 inches tall and 4 inches wide and will come to you signed, dated and ready for display.
